Building Israel, one piece at a time

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

David Ben-Gurion, founding father and first prime minister of Israel, based his leadership on prioritization.

He did this for two reasons: He thought that adhering strictly to priorities was the right way to lead, and he believed the complexities of working in a coalition dictated that you couldn’t deal with even two things at once.

You had to pick one issue and stick to it.

For example, he couldn’t have held a coalition together and pushed four separate issues at the same time because that would have created a single common denominator for his enemies on all four fronts. All they’d have to do is unite against him.

So, Ben-Gurion took up one issue with total passion: the establishment of Israel.
